A New Look At An Old Problem

good idea jeff from goodbuyguys.comI got lots of interesting comments on my blog about the spacing of the receptacles on wall outlets. Many readers shared my frustration about how this ancient design no longer meets modern users’ needs.

Rather than accept my resignation that there were too many (billions!) of these in use,  a company called Power2U has actually addressed the problem.

Instead of fighting the the unwinnable battle of changing the standard, they just improved on it.

Realizing that the spacing of existing outlet receptacles could not be changed because the outlets would no longer fit in their designated wall space, this company has added a feature that keeps you from ever having to plug a space hogging outboard power supply into the wall in the first place.

This new outlet is reasonably inexpensive ($11.50-about four times the cost of a standard duplex outlet) and can be installed by any homeowner with basic tools and minimum skill.
